As talked about in the notes for yet another photo in this album, I am not a style wizard. But even a dummy like me can see that boots are all the rage this year. Of course, it helps to have lengthy, slender legs…
This photo was taken in Verdi Square, and the young lady captured right here was on her way to the subway entrance for the IRT 72nd Street station.
Note: this photo was published in a Mar 31, 2010 agony321 blog titled "Boots spotted in NYC this morning."
This is the continuation of a photo-project that I started in the summer time of 2008: a random collection of "interesting" men and women in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, particularly along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.
As I indicated when I started this project in 2008, I never like to intrude on people’s privacy, so I usually use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them even though they’re still 50-one hundred feet away from me but that implies I have to continue focusing my focus on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what is right in front of me.
I’ve also learned that, in several situations, the opportunities for an intriguing image are very fleeting — literally a matter of a couple of seconds, ahead of the individual(s) in query move on, turn away, or stop undertaking what ever was fascinating. So I’ve discovered to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my conventional urge to conserve battery power), and not be concerned so significantly about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture … soon after all, after the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it really is quite trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main topic.
As a result far, I’ve typically avoided photographing bums, drunks, crazies, and homeless individuals. There are a few of them around, and they would definitely create some dramatic images but they usually never want to be photographed, and I do not want to feel like I am taking benefit of them. I am nonetheless searching for possibilities to take some "sympathetic" photos of such men and women, which may inspire others to reach out and support them. We’ll see how it goes …
The only other thing I’ve noticed, as a result far, is that even though there are lots of intriguing people to photograph, there are far, far, far a lot more people who are not so interesting. They are probably fine men and women, and they may possibly even be far more exciting than the ones I’ve photographed … but there was just absolutely nothing memorable about them.
